Sustainable livestock farming also helps in lowering damage to the environment and the produces such as pork, eggs and milk is far more nutritious and taste better then food from factory farms.
Animal Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in restricted factory farms have less quality life than those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on gree pasture can move around and live an all natural life where else in factory farms the animals are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities have no sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the livestock. This then causes the animals being given antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits are the livestock are able to produce drool which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their digestive system. Seeing that grain fed livestock produce less saliva they often suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
